In a small way, I am trying to help make our country great again. I do this by emphasizing the importance of understanding, supporting, and defending the Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I am noticing that some of these enemies are coming from within and are home-grown. These inside enemies, however, are not inherently malicious; they are just misinformed and waking up, and are securely bound by the “Chains of Conformity.”
It is sad that society appears to condemn anyone for being a Constitutionalist, and labels such as an extremist radical, hell-bent on creating some kind of revolution. Well, open your eyes folks, the revolution has already begun and it isn’t by the Constitutionalist.
Receiving and believing your current news and information from only “television,” is a good way to self-brainwashing and being forced to conform to whatever agenda the mainstream news media wants you to accept and believe. The actual problem is if the main stream News media is corrupted and taken over by this current federal administration (which it is), then eventually becoming conformed and brain-washed is a given.
Case in point, while campaigning for Clark County Sheriff in April of 2014, I traveled to Bunkerville, NV, and also to the Bundy Ranch, for a campaign picnic by the river, to gather support for my sheriff’s campaign. Other Sheriff candidates were also considering visiting this
area to gather support for their campaigns, but later decided against it, fortunately for them. During this critical time, allegedly Senator Reid declared that all those individuals supporting, aiding, abetting and/or associating with the Bundys, were now considered “Domestic
Terrorists.” My good God, am I now on the black list or maybe the “No fly list,” even though I no longer fly? I saw how the mainstream news media tried to associate me, David Lory Vanderbeek, and the Bundy’s, with the shooter/murderers (Amanda and Jerad Miller) of two metro police officers. It should also be noted that I was still a metro police officer detective when the murders occurred.
The implication was that Jerad and Amanda Miller were directly associated with me, the Bundy’s, and Governor Candidate David Lory Vanderbeek. In the political world this is a death blow to political candidates running for office. Of course, any later follow-up clearing information was never published.
So what we have now is the malicious federal prosecution of Cliven Bundy, Ryan Bundy and Ammon Bundy, and several other Patriots. We basically all know that the main focus will be on the Bundy’s, allegedly for their actions and deeds during the standoff in Bunkerville, NV, in April of 2014.
It is amazing that the Feds and the mainstream news media will ignore the actions and deeds of the BLM toward the (unarmed protesters) the first day of the protests, whereby the BLM electrically tasered people over ten times and beat protesters (men and women) along with using police dogs and perched BLM snipers, directly threatening protesters to disperse. The video of these actions has been shown on secondary news media sources.
The following days after in Bunkerville were a whole lot different in perspective. The militia, Oathkeepers, and Patriots from all over the country converged in Bunkerville, to make sure that these abuses by Federal agents (BLM) did not continue or occur again, and that peaceful protesters were allowed to again make their grievances known to the government, under the first Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights.
At first glance, some would argue that the Bundy’s did not want to pay their grazing fees (taxes) and thus, engaged in a 10-year “battle” within the court system to avoid paying these fees or else maybe come to some kind of resolution about where and to who m these fees are suppose d to go, the State of Nevada, or the Federal Government. It is still unclear what “Public Lands” and “Federal Lands” are so defined. (See Article 1, section 8, clause 17)
So now we come to the real back story of what has been happening for decades to ranchers, farmers, miners, or anyone else that owns property, which is “managed” by the BLM.
If one was to do the research and compile a list of literally hundreds of cases whereby the BLM, EPA or any other BioDiversity organizations have systematically pushed out individual land owners by enforcing ever-changing rules and polices to benefit the federal government in a
“land grab,” one would find that the Feds now “own” the land.
Examples: Bundy’s cattle ranch interferes with the China/Reid “Solar” corporation project; the Hammonds cattle ranch in Burns, Oregon, interferes with the “Uranium” Clinton/Russian mining corporation project.
As usual, it is pretty much all about “The Money” and the unholy pursuit thereof. It matters not, to these federal crooks and their lackeys, who gets hurt or killed, as long as they achieve their goal for the money and power. There is a chance that the underlying “Truth” may come out though, if this entire incident makes it to trial in a court of law. God help us.
Remember to Keep your Gun, Keep your Faith, and they can Keep their Change.
In God We Trust
